"Another jazz innovator whose work is largely lost to history, Dottie Dodgion began a 50-year career during the 50s, playing briefly with Benny Goodman’s orchestra. She became a fixture at West Coast jazz festivals in later years, playing with the Brecker Brothers and others. Like Viola Smith, Dodgion never recorded much, aside from one vocal album released in 1996. The one available video clip of her comes from 2013, and she must have been one of the best female drummers in her younger years if she can do this kind of elegant brushwork at the age of 84."
